I feel like I've been going non-stop since my last post. Last I wrote, I was anticipating the movers' arrival to pack up my stuff. Well, they came, they packed, they took, and I slept on the floor for several nights. In the interim, I also got some hands-on experience with car audio components (I had a good time soldering), and saw the Bolshoi Ballet's production of Cinderella (which was even more fun than soldering). Over the weekend, it snowed, rather a lot for Arlington. I was worried that I was going to be in for a completely miserable drive to Pittsburgh (my car really doesn't get on well with wet/snowy/icy/anything other than dry roads). Fortunately, on Monday it was warm, the snow mostly melted, and I was able to load up my car and drive to Pittsburgh without incident. Tuesday, the movers came to unload and unpack my stuff, which was still mostly, but not entirely, in the same number of pieces that it had been in when they packed it. Today was exciting because I started exploring, and made it to the grocery store and back without getting lost. Also, today, the cable guy came and hooked up the internet! Yay for the internet!

On the knitting front, not so much has gotten done. I've hardly knit at all on the Bayerische sock, and I didn't start the second sleeve of the grey Lopi sweater like I'd intended to. I did finish the Cable Mittenettes, though:

Yarn: Ram Wools Inca Silk
Pattern: my own (coming soon)
One of the cool things about these is that the pair took only ball of yarn. This is how much was left when I was done (miscellaneous knitting tools included for scale):

Now that I'm done with the craziness of moving, I should have time to knit again. :) I've got great plans for a lace stole...

Hurray for the return of the internet! Now that this move is over (the movers delivered the yarn, patterns and needles--you know, the really important stuff--without incident, I assume) it's time to discover the LYS. I like the photo of your miscellaneous knitting tools, but I am curious about the Ostrich MIT 2006 disk. What do you do with it? Is it really helpful? Should I get one?
